In our last discussion, we covered a couple critical principles regarding pressing the reset button in our personal lives that will enable us to reach and exceed our goals. For the full post visit: .


Set a new goal. People making potteryAfter we have sufficient faith as a result from our obedience to gospel principles, we need to act.

What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone (James 2:14-17).

As we can see from the Holy Bible, you can’t have faith without action. They go hand in hand, enabling you to start the progression in the completion of your goal. Faith is based on obedience and obedience is based on works. You can’t obey something without action, considering that obey is an action word. You either do or do not; there is no try in action.

So now ask yourself, “If I can do anything to achieve my dreams, then what should I do first in order to maximize my action?” The answer is goals!


Setting and striving for goals is the last portion of this series. We will take an in-depth look at how to set the goals, and what do to if you fail at attaining the goals. Join me on Jan 25th 2014 as we finish up Pressing the Reset Button with goals!
